Hi, I'm new here, but not new to computers. This may be the wrong forum to post this in, but I will statrt here.
Recently I got into a discussion with someone, and he made the following statement
"First of all it's impossible for someone to just "scan" a hard drive without proper software and permission"
I told him he was WRONG WRONG WRONG
But he insists, that no one can log on/get access/scan your hardrive, unles you allow it.
Now this is "true" up to a point, IE Firewalls and such, but those still have weak points.
My question to you is.
Was I wrong in stating that unless you have a closed system, IE NO connection to anywhere, you are STILL vunerable to a possible attempt to scan and hack your system
